Rosenborg – Draws mounting for Rekdal’s charges?

For eleven consecutive seasons, from 2009 through to 2019, Rosenborg would never finish lower than third in Norway’s top division. They’ve now finished no higher than fourth in each of the past two campaigns, with last season’s fifth place representing their worst performance for thirteen years. Worryingly, from the perspective of head coach Kjetil Rekdal, there hasn’t been much sign of progress so far this term.

As we approach the midway stage of the 2022 Eliteserien campaign, the club from Trondheim occupy the same spot they finished in last time round: fifth. This is in spite of losing the joint-fewest matches (2) of any team. Draws – seven of them, which ranks second in the league – like last week’s 0-0 in Aalesund has cost them. Although they have won more often than not this season at Lerkendal Stadion (W4 D2).

Key Stat: Rosenborg recorded three clean sheets in their first three Eliteserien fixtures of the season, but have since conceded in three subsequent home games – giving up six goals to teams currently occupying three of the current bottom four league positions.

Tromso – Can ‘The Boys’ seal first win since May?

Having comfortably staved off any threat of relegation last time round in their first season back in Eliteserien following demotion to OBOS-ligaen at the end of 2019, Norway’s most northerly club would have set out at the start of this season with the intention of surpassing last year’s 12th-place finish. Work to do then for the side dubbed ‘The Boys’. Tromso sit 14th of 16 after losing heavily, 5-1, at Molde in the last round.

That defeat marked only their third in the league this season, which is fewer than third-place Viking, but was their second in which they gave up five goals. Their run of five successive draws – each of them score draws (so 1-1 or 2-2) – emphatically snapped at the home of the 2019 league winners. Next up is a visit to record champions Rosenborg, whom they’ve defeated once away from home in 12 years.

Key Stat: Tromso are keeping the sort of company you don’t want to keep. They are among three teams – the others being Jerv and Kristiansund, sides sitting in the bottom two places in the league table – without an away win in Eliteserien 2022.

Rosenborg Vs Tromso Betting Advice

This fixture deserves credit for staying true to consistency, with each of the previous five Eliteserien encounters between them here at Lerkendal Stadion seeing at least three goals but also both teams involved in the scoring. A bet on Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score makes plenty of appeal then. Not least because that is precisely how Rosenborg’s last three home matches unfolded.


Rosenborg Vs Tromso – Key Facts:

  • Rosenborg have lost only once in their previous 11 Eliteserien home games (W8 D2) versus Tromso, whose sole win in this period came after a 2-1 scoreline in May 2015.
  • Last season saw Rosenborg do the double over Tromso in the league, winning 3-2 as hosts and 3-1 on the road. Coincidentally, Rosenborg would score exactly three goals in each of their last four Eliteserien home fixtures this season.
  • Tromso are still searching for their first away victory of the season, picking up four of a possible 18 points (D4 L2) on their travels thus far. They would score in all of the last five of these games.


The safer bet is simply backing Over 2.5 Goals. Rosenborg have covered this on their own in all four prior home league outings (W3 D1) while all six Tromso away contests went Over 1.5, with four seeing three or more goals. All but one of these six games seen both teams among the goals. Which, again, reinforces the belief that we could witness a sixth consecutive Over 2.5/BTTS encounter between the sides in Trondheim.
